Kinder Gym

Children need as many opportunities as possible to optimise brain development and increase physical potential before they go to school. Kindy Gym provides a safe environment for children to develop physical skills in a fun and playful way, at their own rate.

Educational research tells us that children learn best through exploring and discovering their abilities through physical activity. Kindy Gym offers our children the best way to develop fundamental movement; ensuring they can experience a wide range of movement activities and be encouraged to think, create, construct and solve problems with their own bodies. While developing co-ordination and self-esteem, Kindy Gym assist in your child's physical, social and cognitive development. This program is the second in a series of fundamental movement programs offered by our Club.

Gym Fun

Ages: 5 to 7 years old

 

Gym Fun is the last of the three sequential programs within our Recreational Foundations Program and is specifically designed for children aged between 5 - 7 years old.

Gym Fun is just that. FUN! As with all of the Rec Programs, fun is a key element. If kids are enjoying what they’re doing, they’re more likely to want to do it again… And again... And again! As long as they are safe and repeating skills / activities with great body control, we’re happy for kids to practise as much as they like!

 

In Gym Fun, we focus on the fundamental movement patterns that will help kids to then progress into more advanced skills or activities. Just like Kindy Gym, the games and activities in Gym Fun are safe and encourage kids to work with others, cooperate and build self-esteem.

FreeG

Junior Ages: 7 - 10 years    Senior Ages: 11 - 18 years

Designed to capture the excitement and fast pace of Ninja Warrior, our latest program is now available for all our community.

FreeG is a term used to describe a new and rapidly developing activity which encourages participants to use traditional gymnastics equipment in new ways. It draws on influences from martial arts, free-running, parkour, tricking and breakdance. The FreeG program introduces participants to key concepts and basic skills. The sessions are more structured and use a wider variety of ‘Warrior Circuit’ activities to keep children active and engaged. As with all Gymnastics programs, FreeG sessions focus on teaching children fundamental movement skills using fun and engaging sequential activities that build on the existing skills and knowledge of each participant.

Children are given opportunities to demonstrate their ability to combine elements of effort, space and time when performing movement sequences with and without equipment. They will discuss and demonstrate different movement pathways and flow when solving movement challenges.

Within a FreeG class, it is not unusual for participants to find new and creative uses for traditional gymnastics apparatus, or to be combining different apparatus into a series of obstacles. Many familiar gymnastics skills have been modified for various reasons such as to increase difficulty, or include a new take off technique and a variety of new skills have been developed within this discipline.
